Drowning Pool is currently on tour promoting their upcoming fifth studio album, Resilience, which is scheduled to hit the shelves on April 9, 2013. The guys are co-headlining this leg of the tour with Flyleaf, and will continue later on with Fozzy for their European stint.
Fellow Texan, Jasen Moreno, has taken over lead vocals for the band after McCombs decided to rejoin Soil on their European tour. Jasen is the fourth singer the band has had in the last ten years. Not an easy task for a band to overcome once, let alone 4 times. Jasen has taken on the task with full force, and the crowd was definitely receptive to the new singer and having a blast. Drowning Pool is one of the hardest working and underestimated bands.. These guys know how to put on a great show, and they are extremely interactive with their fans. I’ve been to a lot of concerts but I have rarely seen well-known rockers hanging out and selling their own merchandise. C.J. Pierce was selling merch and thanking people for their support and signing away right up until it was time for him to get his ass up on the stage.
If you haven’t seen these guys live, then you need to put them on your bucket list, and be sure to stop by the merch table, you never know who you might run into.
Check out their latest video for “Saturday Night”; watch?v=Yz7LjDkt33g
Special shout out to C.J. for helping me out with the last minute photo pass. You rock!
